Tate Multimedia is happy to announce a new DLC, Bend the Roo’les, for Kao the Kangaroo by making the base game free for a limited time.
The original Kao was first introduced back in 2000 on the Sega Dreamcast to decent reviews that allowed the franchise to create a handful of sequels up until 2005. Fortunately, after 17 years of slumber, Kao is back on an all-new adventure to rescue his sister and discover the truth behind his long-lost father.
Kao the Kangaroo is a fantastic platformer with a charming narrative that is family-friendly and enjoyable for people of all ages. Whether you’re nostalgic for some old-school platforming or just want to play with your kids on family night, Kao has got you covered. You can check out our full review here.
What is the Kao the Kangaroo Bend the Roo’les DLC?
Bend the Roo’les is the latest DLC for Kao the Kangaroo, adding a whole new level of adventure for fans of the game. The new content features a fresh campaign, a brand-new villain, the Crab King, and five new levels with varying challenges, such as time-sensitive obstacles, rising lava, and dimming light. There will even be a 2D level, which is a nice throwback to when Kao was on Game Boy Advance. You can check out the new DLC trailer on YouTube.
The Bend the Roo’les DLC is available for purchase now on all platforms for $7.99 / €7.99 / £6.59 / AU$11.39. The DLC is currently 20% off on the Epic Games Store.
